Hi everyone.

With Advent upon us, I thought I'd try and compile of all the Christmas & New-Year-themed TV we have here on Archive.org.

I'm sure there are a few items missing off this list, so if you can, please reply with missing titles and I'll keep editing this original post.

To start then, I found these:

1) 'The Ruggles' Christmas episode

2) 'You Asked for It'

3) 'Joe Santa Claus' (1951)

4) Ozzie And Harriet - Busy Christmas

5) Love That Bob - Grandpa's Christmas Visit

6) The Beverly Hillbillies - Christmas At The Clampetts

7) Dragnet - A Gun For Christmas

8) Beverly Hillbillies - Home For Christmas

9) The Jack Benny Christmas Show (1960)

10) The Liberace Show - 1954 Christmas episode

11) Your Hit Parade: 1955 New Years Eve episode

12) "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" 1956 Christmas episode

13) Meet Corliss Archer - Christmas Episode (Circa 1954)

14) Your Hit Parade - Christmas Eve Show 1955

15) Hancock's Half Hour - Hancock's 43 Mins (Christmas Special) (1957)

16) Date with the Angels - 1950s Family Sitcom - Christmas Episode (1957)

17) Ozzie and Harriet - The Christmas Tree Lot

18) 'Coke Time' from Winter, 1955

19) Jack Benny Remembering New Years Eve

20) Jack Benny ep New Years Eve

21) Dragnet The Big Little Jesus (1953)

22) The Nativity (Westinghouse Studio One) (1952)


To my disappointment, a few Christmas programmes have been removed. I had burned 8 or so shows for a couple of Christmas DVDs last year; of those, these are now missing from archive.org:

a) The December 1955 TV production "Miracle on 34th Street."

b) a 3min short promo, from about 1951, called "Suzy Snowflake", which was accompanied by the famous song.



Lastly, in advance I wish all who celebrate it, a most happy, peaceful and blessed Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you also!

This is a good list. I also noticed, along with Suzy Snowflake, there was a similar "Frosty the Snowman" animated cartoon from about 1954 that was also missing. I'm pretty sure I reviewed them both, so seeing that they were missing meant that the time and effort that I put into reviewing them went down the drain.

Thank you for compiling,

William

Yeah, although I don't miss Suzy Snowflake or Frosty because they were downright creepy, I'm sorry to see anything being removed from this site.

SUZY SNOWFLAKE was utterly awesome. You want creepy? Watch the Betty Hutton Show.

Well, if anybody has Suzy Snowflake or Frosty, would they mind reuploading them? I always loved Rosemary Clooney's version of Suzy Snowflake, so even if it isn't her singing on the 3 minute clip, I'd still like to be able to see it. Thanks!

The original upload was of dreadful quality - and it also had a station logo, so I'm not sure if it's okay to upload it.

However, I found a superb-quality copy of it on YouTube. I would have uploaded that, but it too has a logo. Anyway, here's the link:

Suzy Snowflake on YouTube

According the IMDB, the song was voiced by Norma Zimmer.

I found a good quality one on You Tube, if I just cut the text from the beginning talking about the video, could I then Upload it?

Suzy Snowflake and the Frosty cartoons along with Hardrock, Coco, and Joe have been released to the public on DVD. I saw it on WGN's salute to Bozo, Ray and Gar. That's probably why it's been pulled.

I didn't realise that the Studio One Nativity had been removed. As the film is in the public domain there is no reason why it shouldn't be here.

So I uploaded my copy:

Thank-you very kindly!

I loved this. What a cultured age we once lived in!

I live in the UK, and the thought of any station here broadcasting something so beautiful and unusual ... well, I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Anyhow, thank-you again!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for posting this list and thank you, Video Cellar, for The Nativity. I think what I'm gonna do is burn all this stuff on dvd and make "Video Christmas Cards" out of 'em!
